Through a series of small steps, Pathways to Credit can help you build good credit in three steps:
- Set up direct deposit
- Manage the checking account well for two months
- Take out a small loan, make regular on-time payments, and pay it off in six months.
When you've successfully completed the steps, you'll qualify for a NorthCountry credit card so you can continue to build your credit. The best part? We're here to help every step of the way.
